I am considering purchasing a new revolver. I am open to suggestions and where to purchase cheap. I am not interested in snub nosed and I am pretty well covered on rimfire. I have 454 casull, 44 mag, 357 mag, 38 special. some in 4", some in 6" Any ideas?
You have what I have other than the 454cas and the only one I was interested in was the 444 raging bull but since buying the model 44 44mag I do not think the 444 would be any benefit to me. I believe you got it covered IMO
I am just looking to round out the collection. I don't stay current where the good buys are. I do want to stay with Taurus. I wish Taurus still made the raging bee. I don't have a judge but I notice nobody recommended it. I don't have a 41 mag. The pistol would be used mostly for target practice, maybe hunting but I doubt it.
Ok I will be the only Judge suggestion so far. Since the new finish in black is kinda cheesy. I would get one in matte stainless if you are buying new. However I still see used judges with an actual blued finish that are very nice looking, or you could go hog wild and try and find one of these:
Polished stainless with the 3 inch cylinder. They are kinda like unicorns, but still see an occasional one come up on gunbroker,texas gun trader, or armslist. Oddly enough I picked this one up at a local gun store.
.41 magnum is a caliber I've always admired, but never had. I've got enough calibers now I'm not interested in expansion, but .41 magnum is a very under rated performer. It'll do about anything a .44 mag can do. I like the little .41 trackers as possible hiking guns in bear country.
I wish that S&W would make a Governor XVR to compete with the Raging Judge.
Imagine how awesome it would be to have a Revolver that could fire all of those cartridges... .410 Bore, .45 ACP, (with moon clips) .45LC, .454 Casull, and .460 S&W Magnum. That sucker could very well be the ultimate Wilderness Defense firearm.
